Diabetes in Senior Citizens : Treatment

Diabetes in Senior Citizens : Treatment
Treatment :

There is no cure for diabetes, but with careful control of blood glucose level, as well as cholesterol levels and blood pressure, it can be managed.

People with type 1 diabetes use insulin injections, by shots or an insulin pump, to control their blood glucose levels. People with type 2 diabetes use oral medications, insulin, or both to control their blood glucose levels. In some cases of type 2 diabetes, a person can use diet and exercise alone to maintain appropriate blood glucose levels.

Managing your blood glucose includes several lifestyle changes. These include:

  •     Follow a meal plan that makes sense for you and how your body responds to the different foods that you eat.
  •     Incorporate physical activity into your daily life.
  •     Take the appropriate diabetes medicine and check your blood glucose levels in a manner that is consistent with your doctors recommendations is also key.
